RECOGNITION UPDATE

Its been a busy April and we are delighted to give you an update on Pole Sports road to recognition.

In order for a sport to be recognised as such it must become a member of SportAccord (GAISF) and have 40 federations, all of which must be recognised nationally. A recent vote took place at the SportAccord convention for a new membership allowing federations with less than 40 federations to temporarily join SportAccord while they achieve 40 federations. On 15th and 16th June the IPSF will be attending a membership workshop and meeting to discuss the IPSF's future. For further information on joining the IPSF as a federation please READ MORE HERE
